Opportunities for Physics Graduates
After graduation, Denison students find a wide variety of opportunities. After completing the degree, some continue toward advanced degrees (MS or PhD) by enrolling in graduate programs, where Denison graduates excel. Others work in research laboratories, industry, medicine, and medical technology to name a few areas. Independent of the degree (BA vs. BS), undergraduate physics majors gain strong analytical and problem-solving skills. As a result, undergraduate training in physics is recognized by employers as valuable asset for many jobs beyond those directly related to physics, as emphasized by the number of graduates employed in the business world.
Our recent graduates have followed a wide range of directions. Some have received fellowships to attend some of the nation’s most outstanding graduate schools, several have gone into teaching, a number have entered the Navy Officer’s program, and many have accepted jobs in industry, as well as other venues.
Finally, a number of students have followed engineering programs through our 3-2 agreements with four leading universities: Washington University in St. Louis, Rensselaer, Columbia, and Case Western Reserve.
